Im not really sure who I should have replied to with this ..

I dont think its worth its own thread for being basically the same topic ..

But.......

Vicks problem NEVER was the actual dog fighting or animal abuse issues, thats all tabloid .. (well its a problem .. but not in the sense Im trying to point out here)

It was the GAMBLING & Rico charges for crossing state lines the Feds had on him that caused him to cop a plea

it's goes hand in hand .....the gambling charges is what they can get him on for a lenghty sentence but at the same time it's all related to the dogfighting cause you have to have something to gamble on and it was an illegal -felony activity that he was involved in . dogfighting is against the law and he would've been brought up on more charges related to this and the dogfighting would've come up in court and what he did to those animals and their ain't no jury anywhere that would've found him innocent ....he took the plea cause his ass was grass...

don't kid yourself if you think all they were goin' after was the gambling ....

for sure the gambling was not "all" they were going for as it is obviously all tied in together

but the poor animals were certainly the lesser of the potential charges as far as he was concerned thats for sure, otherwise I imagine, he wouldnt have coped the plea

In general...

Gambling & RICO > Dogfighting if your a prosecutor or defendant

He and his immediate partners who all rolled on him are not going to be the only ones in jail over this .. mark my words

I don't think you need to crossover for those types of charges, just need a partner in crime.

from a legal standpoint, true enough.

from a moral/humane viewpoint, not to mention NFL public image/Madison Ave concern, it was the dog fighting and the way the dogs were handled

the reporter that made the comment he would have been better off raping someone was roundly pilloried, but, in my view, was not off target with the comment
